Chapter 7. Modeling Grae > Deformation Testing

Deformation Testing

With the model complete and optimized, we’ve arrived at the final stage for Grae: testing how he deforms.

Joint Creation

Initially, we need to insert joints for the arms and legs. Do this using Skeleton > Joint Tool as demonstrated in Figures 7.56 and 7.57.

FIGURE 7.57 Create the skeleton for the leg.

Since Grae’s arms are not identical, it’s best to test them separately. Instead of creating a new set of joints for the right arm, we can mirror the existing ones. The process in the following steps is illustrated in Figure 7.58.

FIGURE 7.58 Mirror the joints to create the right arm.

1. Select the first joint of the arm, the one before the shoulder.

2. This joint needs to be moved across the X axis to the center of the model, so press Insert and reposition the joint as close to the center as possible.
